About This Event

-------UPDATE-------

Show cancelled! Sorry, we just don't have enough musicians to do this show!

-----------------------

 

 

 

 

 

 

Very few artists transform the landscape of songwriting and popular culture.  Michael Jackson did it with style.  Come join us as we pay tribute to one of the most iconic artists of our generation, the Flashband way. If you’re a musician and want to show what you can do with MJs music, register to play in this showcase by clicking the button in the upper right.

Don’t know what a Flashband showcase is? We bring together a group of 40-50 musicians who form temporary bands that each do a fifteen minute set after a month of practice and songwriting. Read more about it here. 

 

Meet-and-greet jam:

All participating musicians must attend the meet-and-greet jam, where musicians cycle through 3-4 concurrent jam sessions and play with all the other participants, and then begin forming their bands.

The meet-and-greet jam is the start of the process for this show.  It will be held at 7Drum Lessons Studios in NW DC, from 4pm till 7pm.  

 

7Drum Lessons Studios

2008 8th Street NW, DC

May 4, 4pm – 7pm

 

The rules:

We'll have 45+ musicians in 8 bands that first formed just one month before the show. Each band must do a 15 minute set. 

  • At least one song should play on the ‘Michael Jackson’ theme. 
  • At least one original song written as a band since forming
  • No pre-existing bands

We’ll be at Club Heaven & Hell for this one.  Feel free to draw upon any era of MJ, from Jackson 5 to Invincible, from Thriller to Scream.  You can interpret the music anyway you’d like.  Bands can do covers of MJ songs, originals in a particular Michael style, or Jackson songs with a new arrangement.
